Roma star Radja Nainggolan claims that the Giallorossi have “nothing to lose” against Barcelona.
La Magica earned their place in the Champions League Quarter-Finals after progressing through on away goals against Shakhtar Donetsk.
The Lupi have impressed in Europe this season as they topped a group which included English Champions Chelsea and European Giants Atletico Madrid.
The controversial Nainggolan spoke to Il Tempo newspaper about Roma’s biggest two games of the season.
“It’s a very difficult match, everyone knows that, but the great thing is we’ve got nothing to lose. We can only try to make our star shine even brighter in Europe.
“Barcelona are unbeaten, so obviously it’s going to be tough. People think of it as some impossible task and that can become our strength, because they assume we’re beaten and that’s extra motivation”.
“We are going there to play open football and with no fear, because we have nothing to lose.”
